From award-winning designer Michael E. Nelson comes a stunning addition to our Farmhouse House Collection. Whispering Winds is sure to please, with just over 2,000 sq.ft. of living space, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and 2 half baths. The exterior of this home features the classic farmhouse covered porch with exposed timber beams and a vaulted ceiling to give it that rustic feel. On the inside of the home, you will find a split layout that goes against the traditional farmhouse style house plan and incorporates the more modern element of an open floor plan. The 2-car garage offers plenty of storage space for your vehicles and other necessities, but you also have the option to add a third garage bay!

Uniquely Traditional Space

Entering the Whispering Winds home plan, you find yourself in the Foyer. This unique space is a traditional foyer in every sense, except for the bank of windows on the left wall. This bank of windows gives you a great view, but it also lets in tons of light in what is traditionally a dark and gloomy area of the home.

Open Floor Plan

The central core of Whispering Winds is the open floor plan which incorporates the Great Room, Kitchen and Dining area into one seamless space. A vaulted ceiling decorated with faux beams accentuates the Great Room/Kitchen space, and a large fireplace adds that rustic vibe.

The Great Room also gives you two sliding doors that lead out to the rear Grilling Porch where that vaulted ceiling is brought to the great outdoors. On the other side, a bank of windows looks out onto the front of the home for a great view and plenty of natural lighting. This section of the landscaping would be a great place for a bird feeder or a butterfly garden.

Drool Worthy Kitchen

The Kitchen and Great Room are separated by a very long kitchen island that spans nearly the width of the room. This island has seating for 6 and gives you a perfect place to prep dishes, or to clean up after a meal with the large sink and dishwasher, while still letting you keep an eye on the comings and goings.

The rest of the Kitchen has loads of counterspace and room for a large range that is centrally located in the left wall of the space. On top of that, the large walk-in pantry on the left side of the home is perfect for those who don’t like to go to the store very much or who want to buy in bulk.

Entertaining in Style

Adjacent to the Kitchen is the large Dining space, giving you tons of room for entertaining. A 10-seat table should easily fit into this space, and a bank of windows that look out onto the rear of the home will provide plenty of natural light to your meals.

Dynamic Outdoor Living

To the right of the Great Room, you will find a hallway housing access to the half bath, Bedroom 2, and the Outdoor Living Space of Whispering Winds. This large outdoor space is perfect for entertaining in all kinds of weather. It’s split into two sections. The larger section, which is closer to the Great Room, has a vaulted ceiling and is perfect for grilling. The smaller section is still covered and has a large fireplace along one side of it that would be great for snuggling up close to on a chilly day.

Room to Grow

Entering into Bedroom 2, you will find a large space, along with a sizeable walk-in closet. A private room with a single sink vanity leads into the Jack and Jill bathroom, where an adjoining/shower room is shared with Bedroom 3. Bedroom 3 also has its own private vanity room, along with a linen closet and may also serve as a Guest Room. A spacious walk-in closet is found here, as well as a double window that looks out under the front covered porch, and this room can be accessed through charming barn doors from the Foyer.

Fabulously Organized with a Mudroom

Entering the Whispering Winds house plan from the garage, you will find yourself in a long hallway. This hall gives you access to the second floor, as well as a space with a bench with hanging storage that would be perfect for a mudroom.

Life's Little Messes

Further down this hallway is the large Laundry Room, perfect for those busy families. The Laundry Room has space for both a counter and sink, as well as storage over the washer and dryer to hang clothing or to air dry them.

Massive Master Suite

The Master Suite of Whispering Winds is at the very end of this hallway and has plenty to offer. The master bedroom showcases a vaulted ceiling that lends elegance and space to the room. Speaking of space, nothing makes a room feel more spacious than windows, and this master bedroom definitely delivers with a triple window that looks out onto the rear of the home.

The Master Bath gives you everything you need to relax after a hard day of work. It features a double vanity, a free-standing tub, and a corner glass shower. Don’t forget about the huge walk-in closet! Not only does it give you plenty of space, but putting clothes away is a breeze because of the connecting door to the Laundry Room.

Bonus Room Over Garage

Taking the stairs to the upper level, you will find a spacious Bonus Room with a vaulted ceiling. This space is perfect for a playroom or game room for the kids and includes a convenient half bath!
